Happy Monday and here's to another Paper Players Sketch Challenge. Sandy created a sketch for nothing but crafting pleasure and I had loads of fun putting this card together.
Although Sandy gave everybody some "artistic license", I stayed very close to the sketch. It just happened that way. My inspiration was the actual sketch and Stampin' Up!'s Pretty Print Texured Embossing Folder from the current Holiday Catalog.
- The embossed print has such a simple, fun elegance to it. It replicates itself beautifully with the Core'dinations Card Stock.
- I lightly shaded the poppies from the Pleasant Poppies stamp set with my blender pen and some Pool Party and So Saffron ink pads and cropped them with Circles Collection Framelits.
- My Large Scallop Edgelit created a pretty scalloped bottom border from Early Espresso and Pool Party card stock.
- Just a touch of Early Espresso 1/8" Taffeta Ribbon works beautifully for some color balance.
- "Feel Better Soon" is from my new "go to" Hostess Sentiment Set "Express Yourself". The font is simple and clean and works well with almost anything.
Have some stampin' fun and thanks for stopping by my blog today!
